This book was a big part of my childhood, as Iím sure it has been for others in my generation and the generation before me. After I read this book the first time, I believed that animals could talk and that magic and love could bring anything back to life. I think I even tried to find another world in the back of my grandmotherís closet. I canít believe that Iíve let over twenty years go by before picking up the book again.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is about four children, Lucy, Edmund, Susan, and Peter, who are sent to live with the Professor to keep them safe from the air raids in London. The children have lots of freedom to play and explore. While playing hide and seek one day, Lucy hides in the wardrobe and finds herself in another world called Narnia. There she finds that animals can talk. A faun invites her to tea, and she learns about the evil witch who has a spell over Narnia, so that itís always winter but never Christmas. The witch turns animals to stone for disobeying her and calls herself the Queen of Narnia. The trouble for the children begins when Edmund follows Lucy into the wardrobe and meets the witch. Soon all four children are involved in a great adventure.

This book is written in a way that will keep the readerís attention, whether it's an adult or a child reading the book. C.S. Lewis speaks to the reader as if heís in the room with you. He makes the world of Narnia come alive. With this rediscovery of the novel (mainly due to the new movie based on the book) I think future generations will enjoy it as much as I have.
